GetGlue has a phenomenal fan base in TV, movies and sports, and this partnership advances the industry by allowing media companies to visualize this enthusiastic fan activity and content in all sorts of new and compelling ways."

Mass Relevance Platform -- Fueled by GetGlue

GetGlue attracts more than 4 million passionate TV, movie and sports fans who create more than one billion check-ins, ratings and reviews of the programming that defines pop culture. Mass Relevance enables more than 300 clients to discover, integrate and display real-time social content with live and scripted programs as well as marketing campaigns. The Mass Relevance client base includes the big four TV networks, as well as the top four most social TV shows on broadcast TV and the top five most social single TV telecasts.

The integration of GetGlue as a source within the Mass Relevance Platform provides a new, effective way for media companies to evangelize shows and increase viewership through social participation. Media companies using the integrated solution are able to quickly find any conversations related to shows happening on GetGlue and filter on any check-ins, posts, reviews, comments -- and associated images and videos. Exciting content from passionate fans can be highlighted and displayed on any property or device to supercharge social TV, web properties or other brand touchpoints -- and can be monetized through sponsorship. Media companies can choose from out-of-the-box visualizations that include a wide variety of counters, streams, polls, and galleries.

Mass Relevance is the first Certified Twitter partner licensed to re-syndicate Twitter content for display (announced in 2011), and additionally curates social content from Facebook, Instagram, Google+ and YouTube. Media companies can now choose to display GetGlue fan-generated content -- photos, comments and videos -- with content from our other supported sources to create the most engaging visual experiences to evangelize their shows and promote viewership.
